What happens if I can't make it to group one week?
You'll be sorely missed! If there's ever a week where you can't get to your usual group, your Consultant will be more than happy to help you find another convenient group to keep your weight loss on track. Once you're a member of Slimming World, you can attend any group, and you'll always be warmly welcomed by another group of friends.
If there's ever a week where it's impossible to get to any group, please let your Consultant know as soon as possible before group. You can either use one of your six absence weeks or your Consultant will ask you to pay a commitment back fee the following week. We know how hugely important it is for your weight loss to come to group come what may, and the commitment back fee is in place to encourage you to find a way to get to group every single week.
If you're a shift-worker and can't find another convenient group to attend due to your shifts, please let your Consultant know in advance and your commitment back fee will be waived. (If you can't attend for other reasons, you will be asked to pay a back fee.)
In other exceptional circumstances – for example, if you're taken to hospital unexpectedly or have a family bereavement – your back fee would also be waived.
